Look to the past. This dramatic bathroom window has custom shutters influenced by the Tudor period. Back then, it was difficult to make big pieces of glass, so the panes were tiny and held together with lead in a crisscross or other pattern. The panes on these shutters are frosted for privacy but still maintain their period feel.
So you’re ready to remodel that bathroom. Congratulations! As you probably already know, you’ve got some tasks ahead of you. Even with the help of a professional bathroom designer and a general contractor who will take care of the construction and installation, a lot of the mental work inevitably falls right on you, the homeowner.
If your budget is about $500: Get a new shower head, fresh linens and better vanity lighting, and then update the toilet. Unless your toilet is very old, chances are a new toilet seat and flushing lever are all that’s needed to give it a brand-new look. Just be sure to choose a seat and hardware that will work with your existing toilet: Most toilets are either a round or elongated shape, and this determines which toilet seats will work. And while it may sound a bit silly, choosing a really nice toilet seat and lever can make the whole bathroom look classier.
It is important to understand that toilets have minimum clearances, which must be considered for their placement. These can vary depending on location and local codes and customs. They also can be affected by the type of toilet you install.
